Honey Boo Boo is moving on to bigger and better things.

TLC first introduced viewers to hyper pageant queen Alana Thompson via Toddlers & Tiaras in January, and this August, the 6-year-old will star in her own spinoff, Here Comes Honey Boo Boo, Us Weekly can exclusively confirm.

Consisting of six half-hour episodes, the new series will give viewers "an inside look into Alana's world," the network says in a statement.

The breakout star "proves that she is more than just a Go-Go Juice-drinking beauty queen," the statement continues. "When she's not chasing after crowns, Alana's with her family in rural Georgia doing what her family does best: four-wheeling through mud pits and picking up road kill for the family cookout."

Here Comes Honey Boo Boo also stars Thompson's stay-at-home mom, June Shannon, chalk-mining dad, Sugar Bear, and sisters Lauryn "Pumpkin," Jessica "Chubbs," and Anna "Chickadee."
